I’ve attempted to avoid including Kate Upton in any posts at TCB for the simple fact that Mrs. Upton isn’t a baseball player. I’m sure she is a wonderful person but he doesn’t has much to do with Astros baseball minus her relationship with Justin Verlander. Which of course, cool for both of them.
But then the New York Post had to troll. First, the New York Post to take out an ad in the Houston Chronicle with this image:
This ad from the New York Post featuring Kate Upton was in Today's Houston Chronicle. ( I Hate The New York Yankees ) pic.twitter.com/OAnuK9Gdq6— JOHN LONCAR (@JohnLoncar) October 14, 2017
WHAT?! Shock and awe. A fashion model wore a baseball cap in 2013 for a team where she probably does most of her work? She wore a baseball cap that has been arguably become one of the biggest fashion statements that has transcended the game. So of course, that superseded an support for Justin Verlander and the Astros. Of course it does.
The ad itself is harmless. Because I’m sure the Chronicle was happy to get the ad money.
But of course, the Post wasn’t done. Then they had to do a follow up article with the headline “Astros fans were not happy about The Post’s Kate Upton ad.”
The Post had some sad reporter standing outside of the Minute Maid Park waiting to get a juicy reaction about the article.
For the love of....just leave her alone and let her watch Verlander pitch.
